Ok, so I thought I had Marsilea quadrifoliain my 55G for over a year and half. However today, while trying to help another member I was looking at Marsilea quadrifolia pictures and now I'm not sure it's what I have.

This is what is in my tank, and also comes up when searching for Marsilea quadrifolia :

But an image search for Marsilea quadrifolia shows more images of this:

They look totally different to me, the plant in my tank difinitely does not have 4 clovers. Marsilea quadrifolia is described as a clover plant, and I'm pretty sure now that the bottom picture is the true Marsilea. So what is the top picture then?

The top photo is of submersed growth and the lower one of emersed growth. Same plant, different situation.
Wow, I feel stupid. They look totally different though! =0
